The Premier Baseball Social Network for Players, Coaches, Scouts, and Umpires

  My first year ever coaching was for my middle son's t-ball team. The games were three innings and each half inning was played until the complete batting order batted around then the teams switched. About a third into the season I realized the players at the bottom of the line-up were missing out on a big part of the game. Because if they got on base they were the last ones to do so in the inning, once the last player batted, the inning was over. They never experienced the running of the bases because many times after the last player made out, they were still standing on base. Here's a hint of what to do and it will work well. If the games are three innings long, bat
1-12 the first inning then reverse it and bat 12-1 the next inning. This way every player in the order has a chance to get on base and experience a full inning of base running.

Nice, How about coaches stop setting the tee up in the middle of the plate and teach the kids to hit the ball out in front of the plate.
